Working in partnership

Advance TRS and Alstom signed a recruitment partnership in early 2020 and have worked closely together ever since, to deliver a planned programme of recruitment to an exciting portfolio of projects across the UK.

Throughout the pandemic this partnership has evolved and flexibly adapted, to accommodate new legislation, safety guidelines and ways of working whilst maintaining strong delivery results.

A key focus is to build a diverse workforce with inclusivity at its core. Employee empowerment is crucial to Alstom’s success and the business continues to strengthen its culture by promoting diversity and entrepreneurial spirit with a fundamental commitment to integrity and high ethical business standards and practices.

This key commitment has been embraced and mirrored by Advance TRS. We believe everyone deserves the same opportunities, and that the diversity of the workforce is an essential part of success. We are committed to supporting clients to build work environments that are free from discrimination and promote equal opportunities for all.

Further client case studies can be viewed on our separate case studies page and if you are interested to find out more about our work with Alstom, you can do so on our dedicated Alstom RPO page.

We are committed to delivering a high degree of excellence in all our areas of responsibility and strive to demonstrate best practice throughout the entire recruitment service and always supply accurate and well-presented information. This commitment to quality customer service has been recognised by a number of industry awards.
